MOTHER OF SIX CHILDREN DIES, ILL SHORT TIME
Mrs. Austin Grannan, 44, of Montgomery, Dies Sunday.
Mrs. Catherine [name is an error. Her name was Elizabeth not Catherine] Grannan, 44, of Montgomery, wife of Austin Grannan, died at 10:08 o'clock last night at the Daviess county hospital, where she had been a patient for about 12 hours.
Death of Mrs. Grannan was due to two large abscesses of the abdomen the attending physician reported today. She had been suffering from abdominal pain for about a week, and was brought to the hospital Sunday morning for observation. About 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon an exploratory operation was performed, revealing the two huge abscesses of the abdomen, with no hopes being held for her recovery. Death came several hours later.
Mrs. Grannan was born at Loogootee on January 24, 1887 and was a daughter of John and Sarah (Riney) Greenwell. She married Austin Grannan on May 7, 1907, and in this union six children were born, all of whom survive to mourn their mother's passing.
The deceased was well and favorably know in and around Montgomery. She was a member of St. Peter's Catholic church there and of the Altar Society of the parish.
Surviving are the husband and the following children: Vincent, who is at St. Meinards and Adrian, Ambrose, Mary Lucille, Cornelius and Louis at home.
